Future Breeding Pair?

I only went to a plaza today to get some new movies but I ended up being 2 new bettas at the LFS there . I love the little darlings oh so much and will post pictures if people would like to see. The female is a little bit of an annoyance though as she has already slipped through the divider and onto the male's side. Unfortunately, I can't seem to think of good names so I'm looking for any ideas?

Also, the male is a Crowntail and the female looks like either a combtail or a veiltail.

Talking Pictures As Requested

So first up is my new greyish/blue and red male that I got. Any ideas for names?



Next up... my new greyish/blue and red female that I got. I also need ideas of names for her. :)



Also, can you let me know what you think of them as a breeding pair??? I'm pretty sure the male is a crowntail and the female looks to me like a combtail.

They're beautiful pets, but personally I wouldn't breed them. The female is a possibly a combtail at best--I find it easier to see whether or not they're combtails by the ventrals, which she has tucked up in the picture. The fry wouldn't look as nice because the spread of the caudal would be narrower due to the VT influence, and the web reduction won't be as dramatic as a crowntail's should.

Those would be reasons enough for me, but each fish alone wouldn't be what I would consider breeding material. They both have a lot of red wash, the red wash is very difficult to breed out and it's not something people want in a steel blue betta. The current trend is also for masked bettas rather than black faced. Personally, I think your fry would be very difficult to find homes for. If you do decide to breed them, you should probably remove the female before she releases all of her eggs so that the spawn size stays small.

As pets though, I think they're beautiful. The male's face has a lot of personality to it and I love steel blues.

Ok, I might breed them anyways because personally I love the red wash that is in the two of them. I think it gives them character :) I also have friends who are willing to take some off of my hands as well as pet stores near me that are interested. Any ideas on names?
